SETX Wraps up its 4th Season with Year End Championship

Jasper, Tx. May 9, 2017- Four years ago, when the SETX HS Fishing Association was still in its infancy, no one could imagine what would transpire over the next few years. While the organization has evolved to accommodate the growing demand in Southeast Texas, one belief has stood the test of time and remained unchanged. "Since the beginning, all of us have agreed that the year end championship should be our crowning achievement. We want to honor our top 15 Anglers of the Year, our wonderful sponsors, our spectators, and top it off by giving out around $75,000 in scholarship money to our championship top 50." said Tournament Director/Emcee John Salamone.

Jasper, Tx- After a gloomy early week forecast, Mother Nature once again cooperated with the young anglers of SETX and allowed 432 teams from 46 high schools to probe the waters of Big Sam in the 4th of 5 events on the Ford SETX HS Championship Trail presented by Skeeter Boats. "We have been pretty fortunate this spring to avoid the damaging storms that have pushed through our region in the past month to 6 weeks", said SETX President Clint Fountain, "our prayers and best wishes go out to those folks along the Sabine and the recently affected Houston area" continued Fountain.

With only one regular season event left on the 2016 schedule, many of the anglers have turned their attention to the coveted Angler's of the Year award. Tournament emcee John Salamone had this to say, "The consistency that some of these teams have shown is remarkable. We have 12-15 teams who still have a shot at winning this. These teams are consistently bringing in five fish in the 14-18 lb range, and that is what it takes to compete for the AOY trophy", concluded Salamone. 

Tackle Addict First Place Team- 23.48 LBS/Brayden Voightman and Hunter Carter/Kountze HS/Boat Captain Buddy Bumstead

After some early morning issues with the bilge pump and some choppy waters, the team from Kountze settled into the Deer Stand area after launching at Jackson Hill where they found the quality of fish to exactly what they needed. "The numbers were not there , but the quality of fish sure were" said Capt. Bumstead. Flipping weightless senko's into the haygrass and buck brush in the 7-12 foot range proved to be the winning formula for the team from Kountze, or at least part of the team. "My grandson Brayden had a baseball game today so he could not make it today, but I think Hunter did just fine by himself" said Capt Bumstead. The team wished to thank all of those who help with the Kountze team and all of the the SETX volunteers who make HS fishing possible. 

 

Second Place- 22.20 LBS/ Hunter Muncrief and Landen Mccary/ West Sabine HS/ Boat Captain William/Muncrief

After their primary spot didn't quite pan out as hoped, the team from West Sabine moved to a main lake point scattered with hay and needle grasses, where they used V&M swim jigs to catch an early limit. The team managed to catch more keepers throughout the day but could not cull any of their early morning catch. "Hunter had a difference maker on about noon that would have helped a lot, but it pulled free in the heavy hay grass" Muncrief added. The team wishes to thank all of their sponsors, including Williamson General Contractors, Anderson's AC, V&M and more.

 

Third Place- 21.77 LBS/ Kaden Duncan and Randy Abate/ Bridge City HS/ Boat Captain Randy Turner
